Hi Everyone,

I had worked as HR for a Pharma company and management stopped paying after two months of my joining and all of a sudden all the employess started calling for salaries where even i faced same.I spoke to management but they dragged two months by false promises and without my notice they blocked my CUG sim and company gmail..however i recovered mail and wrote them about unethical and cheap tricks of management i marked cc to all the employees stating if management fail to pay we can seek labour court.Finally one day our MD called for my settlement and made me sign/along with thumb impression on resignation letter and gave me non- active account cheque...the content of letter which i have signed.. its not a bond paper just printed on white paper not even on letter head of company

I undertake i shall not use any material or information of comp what so ever it may be in future if found i will be liable for legal action and company can take action to recover loss cause directly or indirectly.

i also undertake that i have never done anything that might damage or cause hardship to the company or it activities if found so i would permit company to intiate disciplianry action that deems fit for such act of mine, (post my resignation).

please suggest will there be any problem to me by this letter am worried since our MD is so cunning in such cases i have wrote mails regarding salaries but nothing apart and post resignation no communication through mails.And i have come across few employees who told me he kept lot of grude on you and planning something over the letter and blaming for losses of company.

i thought he would pay me cash but after formalities he gave me cheque which account is under recovery of 5crore where bank charged for company to repay soon.
I feel there is no chance for him to do false statement on me cause all i want is salary and he decided not to pay and started threatening me.

But being a simple housewife am lil worried about the issuse..please suggest on this..

Take proper legal advice before signing anything of this nature.
The language used n the note is wide and open ended,giving scope for litigation.
Tomorrow if you file a case against cheque bounce,they will use this clause of direct or indirect damage to company which is already running in loss.

yes but his intention is not correct as he knowingly gave the cheque..anyhow i dnt have plan of doing at action with thinking from any other end is there anychance for him .. litigate on me
and there is no proper licensing to company regards to drug manufacture and marketing as well i have come to know only worried of the letter ..cause person with so much cunning nature may misuse i want to take back letter by normally submiting resignation and never look back, it possible please suggest.. i have copy of feeling like seek someones help and close the issuse directly talking to him ... and all this happen in Oct 2015..and how long such letters are valid once employee leave the company
Dear Priya,
This is a case of cheating and fraud. Company is trying to blackmail you. You can take legal action with FIR. Police diary is necessary for sec 420 of IPC.
Collect the material evidence against company as far as possible. Perusal of record will help you in proving your innocence.
Your undertaking by company will not stand defensive for the company as you have given under pressure, fear and force.
Do not wait and fear. Don't let them to overrule you. Move the district court in person under your jurisdiction if he is cunning and powerful. Being a women and an employee, you will be given weight age in the court of Law
Thanks & Regards,

The undertaking, which you have reportedly signed or made to sign, is of no legal significance; it is just a placebo.
By the way, having been forced to sign the resignation letter, are you still in service with the company. If you are not in service, there is no scope for any disciplinary action.
What happened to the cheque? Could you en-cash it?
